I am the grand-daughter of Walter J Gasser. I am not sure where he was born, although I think it was Wisconsin. He died in 1952 in Seattle, Wa, and was born in 1887. He settled in Omak, Wa and was quite a business man there. There is an old family story of Walter's brother (or maybe an uncle, you know how family stories are)while living in Wisconsin, got cabin fever one winter. He ran out of the cabin screaming into the woods, never to be heard from again. Any stories like that in your line?
